Everybody is a genius

March 14 will be the 132nd anniversary of Albert Einstein’s birth. He offered a lot of memorable quotes, but here’s one that I think reflects my frustration with testing and even schooling that values just a couple of ways of knowing.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
– Albert Einstein
